Re: Disappointment and rejection 2020 megathread

I think this journey is filled with challenges and rejection, and it can pile on the self-doubt in frustrating amounts. I’m now three years into applying and wondering whether to give up at this point or put myself through yet another rollercoaster of stress! Each year I’ve managed to get an interv...

Re: Face to face interview amidst pandemic!!

I understand what you mean, and virtual interviews are really challenging especially when they would normally involve group tasks etc. I guess like you say if the service is just operating as normal it might not even cross their minds not to do interviews as normal whilst maintaining social distanci...

Re: Face to face interview amidst pandemic!!

I work in a service that is fully operational still with a lot of staff putting themselves at risk every day, but we aren’t allowing any external visitors and conducting all interviews virtually. Fair enough if you have the job to be going in to work, but personally I don’t feel interviews in person...

Re: Reserve list for interviews 2020

I’m first reserve for Surrey but haven’t been contacted yet unfortunately, given the interviews are next week it seems unlikely at this point!

I’m not doing therapy as such as it’s not quite my role but I work in a residential school (children’s home) too and we’re business as usual too!

Re: Screening test results

From my experience you don’t ususlly get any kind of results / feedback; I think this is mostly because there’s no such thing as a ‘pass / fail’, but rather some kind of system to work out the top however many applicants instead so the results themselves wouldn’t really mean anything.
